If the Device Manager STILL does not recognised K910/Android Composite ADB Interface, just
install this version of ADB Driver installer : http://adbdriver.com/downloads/ . Reboot PC, and
verify in Device Manager again.
However, if the Device Manager STILL does not recognise Android Composite ADB Interface,
you may proceed with the Lenovo ADB Composite ADB Interface. But, if the following steps fail,
you must leave that PC/laptop, and start from Step 2 at another different PC/laptop.
8. Download the K910 Dual-SIM Official Stock JellyBean 0109 VIBEUI 1.0 ROM from :

green text "START".
Note : If you received error message file size error or similar, please CANCEL and reboot K910 as
usual. You need to EITHER :
OPTION 1 : Upgrade K910 to KitKat ROM via Over-The-Air (OTA) or via CWM Method. Then, repeat
from step 2; OR

CWM Method

Version : 140827

19. Extract CWM into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot". You may rename it to
"recovery.img".
20. Download these files:
20.1.VIBEUI_V1.5_1427_3_ST_K910_C316.zip (CH/EN) :
https://yadi.sk/d/m2jNdz5-VvDgv
Rename to "rom.zip".
20.2.GAPPS : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2397942 . Suggest to use
Mini Modular Package. Rename to "gapps.zip".
20.3.SuperSU : http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu . Rename to "update.zip".
21. Connect K910 to PC via USB. Ensure Debug Mode , i.e. Step 3.
22. Copy file (20.1), (20.2) & (20.3) above into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot"
directory.
23. From this directory: "Shift keyboard" + "Right-Click mouse" to run "Open command window
here".
24. In Command prompt, type and ENTER:
24.1."adb devices". You should see K910 is detected. If not, repeat Step 2 all over again.
24.2."adb reboot-bootloader". Your K910 screen shows "lenovo" image.
24.3."fastboot boot recovery.img". K910 is now in CWM recovery.
25. Use K910 VOLUME buttons to navigate & POWER button to select. Goto "Install zip" > "Install zip
from Sideload". K910 screen will say sideload is running with example of command.
26. In your PC/laptop Command Prompt, type and ENTER the followings:
26.1."adb sideload rom.zip". Wait till it finishes 100%. Check success status at K910 screen.
26.2.Re-do step 25.
26.3."adb sideload gapps.zip". Wait till it finishes 100%. Check success status at K910 screen.
26.4.Re-do step 25.
26.5.adb sideload update.zip .Wait till it finishes 100%. Check success status at K910 screen.
Note: If at any stage, after you run the ADB SIDELOAD command, the command prompt returns
"error: device not found" or similar, you have to start all over again starting from Step 2 onwards.
This error occurs due to driver incompatibility with Windows XP/7/8/8.1 . You need to uninstall
existing driver and re-install again. Or, you can try other PCs/Laptops that have never been
installed with Universal Android USB driver before.
27. Use K910 VOLUME buttons to navigate to "Go Back" > "Reboot system now".
28. Select NO when prompt to fix the root. The rebooting process takes about 5 minutes. Be
patience. It is NOT brick or hang.
PANIC MODE:
I am still believing Android phone(s) cannot brick. If at any stage, K910 does not reboot properly, or
hang, or freeze, just press-hold for 10 seconds the POWER button and repeat Step 11, 12, 13 & 14.
At least K910 is not brick and you can still use the K910_SS_S_2_040_0109_131226 stock JellyBean
ROM.
All the best.!
